I haven't read a Stephen King book in quite a while. I had pretty much given up, as it were. They were getting too, I'm not sure what. But this one is FABULOUS. Don't be put off by the over 800 pages-it goes by quickly. I was amazed at how much I liked this book. Who wouldn't want to go back in time and right a wrong? But what happens then? So well done. The Kennedy assassination has always interested me. Did Oswald really act alone? Was he a Lone Gunman? King's theories are fascinating-I haven't see the miniseries, but might just to see how they handled it. Great book-give it a read!
A little different from the other 'Three Pines' books. this one finds our hero Gamache, in Paris, but still investigating a mystery, with Jean Guy by his side, actually, his whole family is there. Enjoyable as always but I did find some so many characters to be confusing. Still an enjoyable read, and since we're stuck 'at home' for who knows how long , it's good that books are still safe to read.
The stories of two children in Europe during WWII-one a young blind girl, and the other a German boy-told separately, but they do eventually come together. Haunting is the best word I can come up with.
So many characters in this book, so many stories. I love they way they all wind together. Took me awhile to figure out what was what and who was who, but it is truly beautiful when it all comes together. Just like the two previous books, this is a gem.
For the first time in a long time, I actually got a little misty eyed at the end of this book. I liked that the dog is the narrator-he is probably the most likable character in the book. This was a quick read-and even though I cried a little at the end, I enjoyed it.
Enjoyed it-what happens when you you find out not only is your husband dead, but he's been found murdered in a call girls apartment??? Not sure if I would have gone to all the trouble that Susie Gersten does to find her husband's killer (considering where he was found)-but it moved quickly and kept my interest.
